"Going Home Song" - that wouldn't be this one, would it?:

Poor old landlord can't get the buggers out,
Can't get the buggers out,
Can't get the buggers out,
Poor old landlord can't get the buggers out,
Time Gentlemen Please!
Time Gentlemen Please!
Time Gentlemen Please!
Poor old landlord can't get the buggers out,
Time Gentlemen Please!
